When it comes to Ale and Cider, Birmingham are a few hops and apples fields above the rest, boasting a fun constituent of local tipples, brewers and flavours. Utilising this in celebration of Birmingham's Beer and Cider Festival this coming October, CAMRA have put together a jaunt across the city in search of some of the best flavours known to ale and cider loving lips. Whilst pub crawls may be normally known for larking chaps and drinking mishaps, CAMRA have put together a pub trail in Birmingham that results in prizes rather than poorly heads.
Pooling together 40 of some of the city's best pubs, bars and watering holes, CAMRA present their Ale and Cider Trail. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to drink at least one glass of ale or cider in each of these selected pubs, collecting a stamp for your passport at every venue along your way. Kicking off in September and finishing come October 22nd, the Ale and Cider Trail isn't just an adventure in historic tipples, it's your chance to win a day pass for the Birmingham Beer Festival with a free t-shirt to boot.
Pubs taking part in the CAMRA Ale and Cider trail include:
- The Victoria, John Bright Street
- Post Office Vaults, New Street
- The Fighting Cocks, St Mary's Row
- The Lord Clifden, Great Hampton Street
- The Church Inn, Great Hampton Street
